Eroded Metallic Leaf Fragments
The background is cream cardstock run embossed with the Sizzix/Tim Holtz 3D Foliage folder. I took an embossing pad and lightly ran it over the paper, hitting the raised areas, poured gold embossing powder over the entire front and tapped off the excess and heated it.
I didn't have a sheet of evergreen cardstock to mat the panel so I ink blended the edge of the mat with Rustic Wilderness Distress Ink, I think the color is perfect with the gold and brings out the bit of green on the leaf.
I popped up the leaf with pop dots, cut to fit. I think the dimension from the shaping tools really make a big difference. The extra details make a card special.
I think this card is perfect for a (my) college student heading back to in person class after a year studying remotely.
I'm entering this card into 'De-stress with distressing' challenge on the Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge. http://frillyandfunkie.blogspot.com/
I hope you like my card, have a wonderful day.
